Stringing Together Sight And Sound With A Hint Of Cheese

Guitar great Lee Ritenour teamed up with an all-star lineup for the new 6 String Theory. We’ll reconcile playing only one track on Deep Threes Radio #11 by trotting out this video of “Captain Fingers”.

String Theory is a deep subject, with or without guitar strings. It took no less a personage as Wero The Great to bring us the big picture in a two minute video. Note the cutting edge animation. Dude, how did you get those slides to flip that way?

The vlogging siblings of Sister Salad united to offer their own musical take on strings. No word on any future projects involving rope. The time lapse photography gives you a chance to fill in the blanks.

Art rock veterans Mercury Rev lent a track from 1998’s “Deserter’s Songs” to the Deep Threes mix. Hazbeeni strung together this animation evoked by “Goddess On A Highway.” Spoiler alert: the bunnies unite at the end…

Marc Barreca united video art with some of the electro-acoustic pieces on his latest for the Palace of Lights label, “Subterrane”. Here’s the results of Marc reconciling the visual and aural of “Alien In A Strange Land” (in stunning 1-D).

Deep Threes Radio #10 Playlist

In honor of the 10th show, I declared “let them eat cake” but in a nice way. This giraffe cake looks yummy and inviting. Her eyes just say “bite me”.

U.S. Army General (maybe not much longer) Stanley McChrystal didn’t eat cake with President Obama after the General and his staff stuck their necks out for a Rolling Stone story. McCrystal is shown here in Afghanistan sans helmet, stepping off a helicopter flown by a National Guard crew from Delaware, the home state of Vice President Joe “Bite Me” Biden.

Members of McCrystal’s entourage are rumored to be taking time out from their 15 minutes of fame to change the address on their magazine subscriptions to General Delivery at Thule Air Base , Greenland, APO AE 09704, where the only Special Ops they will be doing is gathering intel on the icebergs floating by.

There is no famine of music on this week’s show. You’ll sink your teeth into some tasty surfer licks and have a religious experience or two.

Deep Threes Radio #9 Playlist

Ah, pizza – a silver bullet for the 21st century. A menagerie of shady characters have used pizza to try to entice me into all manner of schemes from safety patrols to appliance sales. One particularly nefarious group used pizza to try to get me to vote.

President Obama is rumored to have ended his holdout on speaking with BP CEO Tony Hayward after Hayward offered to bring pizza to the White House. BP’s peace offering plan hit a snag when they tried to place an order at the pizza place around the corner from the U.S. Minerals Management Service headquarters in Washington. The joint was no longer serving pizza, just seafood. BP passed.

Looks like BP will need to pony up $20 billion for an escrow fund to cover damages from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Hayward and company are scrambling to find another pizza place to act as the third-party claims processor.

No pizza for Deep Threes today. Just psychedelic rock, blues and electronica piled on top of an extra layer of jazz.
